Abstract Details


To evaluate the factors affecting fine vaulting of the 12.6mm Sized Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) V4c implantation.


Eyereum Eye Clinic, Seoul, Korea. St. Mary's Hospital, Songdo,Korea. Department of Ophthalmology, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University School of Medicine.


254 eyes with myopic refractive errors of 2.00 to 19.13 diopters undergoing ICL implantation were examined retrospectively. The magnitude of the central vaulting of the ICL was assessed quantitatively using the Visante anterior chamber optical coherence tomography system at 6 months after surgery. Stepwise multiple regression analysis was performed to investigate the relation between several variables (age, anterior chamber depth, axial length, white-to-white, pupil size, sulcus to sulcus, preoperative spherical equivalent) and the amount of vaulting at 6 months after surgery


The mean central vaulting 3 months after surgery was 523.7± 114.2 μm (250.0 to 740.0). Explanatory variables relevant to the vaulting were, in order of influence, the anterior chamber depth distance (partial regression coefficient B=0.149, P<.001), axial length (B=0.019, P=.002), and pupil size (B=0.025, P=.010).


Although the majority of the variance remains unexplained, eyes with greater anterior chamber depth, axial length, and larger pupil size are more predisposed to have higher ICL vaulting over the crystalline lens.
